I always liked 5/13/83

The transition from Estimated seems like its going to be a quick one, but once they settle into the song it is a slower and extremely long version of Eyes - like almost 20 mintes long. Most other versions from '83 are overly hyper and short.

5/13/83 is one of my all time favorite shows that I attended. They played just about every song with a different vibe than the rest of '83. The raven cawing and diablical laughter at the end of the drums gets the crowd to crack up. They jammed so long that night that they didn't do an encore as they had already passed the UC Berkeley late night curfew...I wish they had skipped the encores more often.

The AUD recording is extremely good, there is a SBD source but like most early 80's SBDs Jerry is way down in the mix.
